The actress Natasha Richardson died after falling, while skiing in Canada. It took eight hours to drive her to a hospital.
If Canada had our healthcare, she might be alive today. We now have helicopters that would have gotten her to the hospital in 30 minutes. President Obama wants to have our healthcare like Canada’s and England’s.
In England no-one over 59 can receive heart repairs or stents or bypass surgery, because it is not covered (too expensive and unnecessary).
I got this today and am sending it on. If President Obama’s plans in other areas don’t scare you, this should.
Please do not let President Obama sign senior death warrants.
Everyone on this mailing list is either a senior citizen, getting close, or knows someone who is. Most of you know by now that the Senate version, (at least) of the stimulus” bill, includes provisions for extensive rationing of health care for senior citizens. The author of this part of the bill, former Senate President and tax evader, Tom Daschle was credited today by Bloomberg with the following statement:
Bloomberg: Daschle says: “Health-care reform will not be pain free; seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them.”
If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, just remember that Senators and Congressmen have their own healthcare plan that has a very low co-pay which they are guaranteed the remainder of their lives — and are not subject to this new law if it passes.
Please use the power of the Internet to get this message out. Talk it up at the grassroots level. We have an election coming
up in one year and nine months. We have the ability to Address and reverse the dangerous direction this Congress, and its allies
have begun — and in the interim, we can make their lives miserable.
